Gastroparesis with severe symptoms!

Thank you so much for the information. I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis 2 weeks after my surgery, so I know what caused it. The vegas nerve is damaged. If I don’t eat I get nauseous and if I do eat about 10 to 15 minutes after I vomit and have dry heaves and the diarrhea starts. I get so worn out I have to lie down and rest. I have no strength anymore and I’m still losing weight. I applied for a Gastroparesis study but because during my surgery the doctor performed a fundoplication wrap (which he explained that part of my stomach was wrapped around the esophagus) I didn’t qualify. I live in New York. I’m sure one of my gastroenterologist’s can let me know if I qualify for a pacemaker and if I do where I can get one. I’m so glad you found some help. Thanks again.

I also had a Nissen fundiplication, pylori plasti and the gastric pacemaker all done in the same surgery. I’m sure you could have the gastric pacemaker put in also. Good luck & I hope you find a dr that will do it for you. I had to drive quite a ways away to find a dr to do it but it was so worth it.
